Rupp's World Record Attempt: Hicham El Guerrouj and Bernard Lagat have been put on alert. #chaserecords

Flotrack will be on hand for the BU Valentine Invitational and will also make the trip back to Boston to see if Rupp can go three-for-three in his chase for American records. It’s certainly not an afterthought considering l ast year’s near miss , but Bernard Lagat’s American record of 3:49.89 set in 2005 will also be on the table. It's an odd thing to make the American record the sub-header for this race, especially considering it's the hardest of the three events (5k, 2-mile and mile) for Rupp. That being said, "if you don't go after records, you have no chance of breaking records ." Below are the top 10 mile marks of all-time (via alltime-athletics.com):
